Are you talking about the SIM card or the microsd card?

Default Samsung Galaxy Note won't turn on

Beards!

Thanks to your advice. Was able to turn on my Samsung Galaxy Note again!
I was surfing the net when it suddenly lagged and turned off automatically. I wasn't able to turn it on until I found the answer in your forum! Thanks for the help!

Default My galaxy tab won't turn on

I woke up yesterday and its showing the samsung start-up logo. I waited but its still stuck. There is a vibration while the samsung text is stuck in my screen. Whenever I turn it off and on again, it still stuck on the samsung text with vibrations. I tried reboot/wipe cache partition using power key and volume +. But it won't do anything.
All my files are saved in my tab.
PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!

I tried all the options above,
the one thing I don't understand is; when I plug it into my pc and hold the power + volume up it asks for a CD. Nobody ever got this "CD" and when I try to search in my pc files it can't find the needed, APX file.

Anyone the same problem?
Or the solution?

Everything goes back to normal.

If that fails to work ~ Connect the power cable and repeat the above steps.

Da Beards (from Chicago)..

Worked great, EXCEPT I needed to push the power button one extra time to get it to reboot, as the battery was flat.

Vote for Beards !!

Hello dear Beards,

I was desperate when my Samsung 7" + tablet, for the first time, refused to turn on this evening. It was dead, no charging nor connecting to my PC worked. And then I found your instruction and like a brilliant magic, my tablet is working again, exactly as you wrote above. Out of a sheer delight I just had to register to this forum in order to convey my sincere gratitude. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You saved me and Samsung as I almost was going to crucify Samsung company with nasty comments.

A happy mama from Vienna, Austria :-)

I'm a computer technician but have never until now needed to troubleshoot a tablet or Android system. My son's tablet was dead & thank God I know how to quickly find repair answers! Worked like a charm... my deepest gratitude!

The trick is in ensuring you press and hold that power button and touch the screen..... At no point let go until you get the boot up logo appear.

If this fails then it will definitely be a hardware issue.

Thank you. I've had my Tab for over a year and this is the first time it would not turn back on. Our stupid catch had chewed two of my charging cables and I didn't think it was charging. But doing this step, my tab came back on and I can see it is charging now.

Thanks,
